Strawberry Swing Into Summer!
Summer is pretty sweet, and it just got sweeter! We picked up 100 pounds of freshly picked strawberries from our new friends at College Run Farms, just across the river in Surry. Talk about fresh … We cleaned and prepped them the same day they were picked, and put them right into our tank of Alfalfa honey mead. Sweetened with both Alfalfa honey and Raspberry Blossom honey, we now have a delicious sweet mead with tons of berry flavor. You’ll taste strawberry (of course) but also look for cherry, lime, and butterscotch.
By now most of you know we love connecting our meads to songs and I’m happy to have a Coldplay song to connect this one to. Found on Coldplay’s 2008 release, Viva La Vida, Strawberry Swing harkens back to the innocence and sweetness of childhood and the pure enjoyment of the simple things like sitting on a swing with someone special. We hope you’ll take the time to slow down and savor what is good this summer … and if you do it while enjoying a glass of one of our meads, all the better!
